Clarification: there are five categories of fitness for military service, which are determined based on health indicators. This information is recorded in the military card. The Insider is not aware of the health status of any of the individuals listed below, nor can they claim they do not have a reprieve based on custody of their four children. This list is based on public data.
The son of Deputy Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, Ilya, is 27 years old. In 2016, he graduated from the Faculty of International Law at MGIMO and immediately after graduation was hired by the VKontakte company - although no one knows for what position. Then he went to work at EM Wye Group JSC, owned by Maxim Yusufov, the youngest son of former Minister of Energy Igor Yusufov. This summer, Medvedev Jr. joined United Russia.
Nikolai Choles, 32, is the son of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Until 2012, he lived in England, where he even managed to serve 15 months for stealing money and a mobile phone from a passerby. Choles is an ideal candidate for mobilization: he served in the missile forces, is a military reserve. For a while, he also worked as a correspondent for RT.
Leading YouTube channel "Popular Politics" were able to get through to Choles. They introduced themselves as employees of the military registration and enlistment office and stated that he should appear there on September 22 at 10 am. Peskov's son replied that he would "naturally not come anywhere" and promised that he would resolve the issue "on a different level."
Former director of the FSB and secretary of the Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, has two sons: Dmitry and Andrey. The first is not subject to mobilization, since he holds the post of Minister of Agriculture. But Andrei is an ideal candidate: in 2003 he graduated from the Academy of the FSB and until 2006 worked as a personnel officer of the special services in the department in charge of the oil market. From the FSB, he went first to Rosneft, and then to the oil company Vietsovpetro, jointly with Vietnamese businessmen.
Alexander and Daniil Solovyov

Daniil is 20 years old, he graduated from the Lomonosov school and, according to the tabloids, has devoted his life to parties.

According to his grandfather, chairman of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov, he is a true patriot. In 2010, Leonid graduated from the Faculty of Sociology of Moscow State University and is now a member of the Moscow City Duma. An ideal candidate, by the standards of State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin: he previously stated that deputies who meet the requirements for mobilization should go to war.

He has already managed to receive a medal of the Order for Merit to the Fatherland, II degree for his contribution to the development of the fuel and energy complex, and now works as deputy director of the department of joint projects in his father's corporation.

After 2009, Gref Jr. returned to Russia and got a job at the famous Deutsche Bank. Later, he was appointed to the position of managing director of the investment firm A1, owned by Alfa Group.
Another ideal candidate for mobilization is the son of the chairman of the VEB.RF state corporation, Igor Shuvalov. Yevgeny is 29 years old and from September 2011 to September 2012 he served in the Pacific Fleet Special Forces based on Russky Island.
